We have been coming to Rococos for a few years now as a couple or in small groups and have never been disappointed. This weekend we took a group of 28 there, and unlike other small restaurants who struggle to serve a large group accurately and at the same time, Emily and her family made sure every lovely dish was brought promptly, accurately and with a friendly smile. They were extremely accommodating of special requests and allergies, and even converted a few hardened Zone-1 dwellers to come back out to the suburbs again in the future to visit this lovely restaurant with unbeatable food. we will always keep coming back, and they made a celebration day an even more special experience.

Me and my Italian partner have been to a lot of bad Italian restaurants in London but this was the worst. Walked out without eating the plate of big fatty sausages and huge pieces of broccoli swimming in watery sausage fat. It was supposed to be penne al cinghiale. No sugo no cinghiale.

The only compensation in this place is the food tastes nice. The owner or perhoas the main server is a woman from Malta. Her mannerism were poor. She had no sense if serving. She would ask you to give her the plate rather than picking it. She picks up the plate before the meal is finished, and you have to... More

This was my second visit and on both occasions I've found this Italian restaurant to be most pleasant. The small seating area outside overlooks the river (and the German restaurant next door) and the place has a nice Italian trattoria sort of feel. Service is OK, can need chasing along a little, but the food was good and reasonably priced.... More

Wonderful little find. Only ended up going here because pizza express was full but so glad we did. Food and service was wonderful and I'd much rather give my money to a family run restaurant like this than the chain restaurants that are taking over our high streets. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic value for money. The quality isn't great. But fo absic pizza or a pasta you really cannot go wrong. The wine is perfectly drinkable. And there's a nice outdoor terrace with a view of the river. Gourmet it ain't. Acceptable (and filling) it is.

The food was tough cold and tasteless not freshly cooked even the lemon had seen better days. We didnt even eat the meal after a few bites left.. so sad no one tried.. they didnt make... More

This restaurant is absolutely awful. Never have I been to eat somewhere where are the staff are so rude. When we arrived it was Friday at 1.15pm. The door was locked and a small older woman came to open the door. She did not greet us she simple said straight away that she was far to busy and was lot... More

Visited today for my birthday and I have to say it was one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to. Food was exquisite, top quality and we were served very quickly. Also met the manager who was a lovely and caring Maltese lady.
